are proficient in math or reading and in places like detroit roughly 3% are proficient. i tried to calculate how many kids that might be. it is roughly 132 that are proficient in math in a place like detroit. over the past few years we have -- i have tried to figure out through lots of failures and a tiny bit of progress what we can actually do about those facts. two years ago i stumbled on the work of the harlem children and we did an evaluation. i was pretty blown away to see that after four years his students who were lotteryed in, good for them after four years he had to raise the achievement gap in math between the average black students who applied for the lottery and the average white students in all of new york city and cutting the third the gap in english-language arts. i thought that was real progress and i wanted to understand how we could do that for all kids. we went and it reminds me of my grandmother's baking time. i am sure you could say i am certain you have nothing on my grandmother. i needed to say that on c-span just because she is watching. my grandmother is an absolutely fa
of it all, go back and read ronald reagan's 1980 acceptance speech in detroit. it is one most of the ideological speeches i've ever read in my life. >> i would argue this country's waiting for a mandate for some sort of galvanizing -- >> reagan said you elect me, this is what i'm going to do and i'm going to radically alter the course of the government that began growing in 1933. >> so here is president obama last night, phrasing our troops in the war zone while mocking mitt romney's recent foreign policy tour. >> we are forever in debt to a generation who sacrifice has made this country safer and more respected. we will never forget you. and so long as i'm commander in chief, we will sustain the strongest military the world has ever known. when you take off the uniform, we will serve you as well as you've served us, because no one who fights for this country should have to fight for a job or a roof over their heads or the care that they need when they come home. [ applause ] >> my opponent and his running mate are new to foreign policy. [ applause ] but -- from all that we've
. >> what did mitt romney say? you all know this. he said let detroit go bankrupt. in strong -- in strong contrast, president obama took action, putting together a rescue team, demanding real change and real sacrifice from everyone involved, from management, from labor -- >> bob king, the head of the uaw speaking there. a hard pitch from the democrats here on the auto bailout, this is the president of the union, heard from an autoworker. this is an issue you have covered so intensively. are they doing the politics right? >> they are. this is an issue where the republicans were clearly on the wrong side of history. it wasn't just the president write agcheck and saying we're going to do this. mr. king just referred to a rescue team. what president obama did after much thought and consideration and consternation put together a team headed up by ron bloom who had a lot of work in dealing with troubled steel factories and he wanted to get it right. as soon as these guys from detroit showed up in their jets in washington, it was a big story. he said don't do that again. come back in your own ca
-- the president runs strong there -- ran strong there. in michigan of course mitt romney said let detroit go bankrupt. i don't think he will ever recover from that. wisconsin is -- wisconsin is closer than it was in '08. we will win wisconsin. i don't think there is any doubt. we have out organized them in wisconsin. we have got so many offices, staff, one of the top obama people in the entire orbit for many years now runs our operation in wisconsin, and we're going on the air there which made news -- made news last night that, you know, why are you going on the air there if you think you are so strong. well, look, we're getting pounded by outside groups. the romney campaign is on the area there and we have lead in three of the last five polls, and we have a real clear politics average lead of a couple of points. we'll win wisconsin when it is all said and done. the interesting one is north carolina where if you hear the republican spin on north carolina, they should be up five or ten points there. we have got whatever problems they perceive in north carolina. it's a

on the flight into detroit -- that we have to be more vigilant and there has to be more surveillance and there has to beat more guarding of the united states and the homeland. guest: i think we have to be careful but i don't buy colesville surveillance of and -- i don't think wholesale surveillance is affected. it does not decrease -- it does not increase our national security to do this. it threatens it. when communities feel under siege, they closed down and don't communicate. when the oklahoma city was blown up, police did not monitor other communities around the country. we think that is not acceptable to take one individual who has committed a crime and say the group that he comes from is somehow culpable and you have to crack down on them. there would have been a nationwide outcry if that had happened after timothy mcveigh. that is what has happened with the arab american community in this country. host: you talk about the growth of the program "democracy now." what change has there been in the focus for the purpose of the radio program as it has moved into television over the
